Show pics of your fav black jazz w/ fav pickguard!
<br> My baby
I'm going to follow this one. I'm want to make a new one for my Bacchus. This one is temporary. It looks cool but on the black jazz, I want something more refined. I have a piece of red pearloid so right now, I'm leaning towards that It should look a lot like the tort one posted above, just a bit more bling
3-ply black pickguard (blk/wht/blk) especially with maple fretboard
Let me see ..... ?
How about, GREEN !?
I was just playing around with Photoshop and came up with these.
I'm thinking about making the pickguard and control panel all one piece. A little break from tradition.
Fender did that in the late 80s (I think) to "cut prices", but I thought it looked killer. I've also seen a high-end J-Bass builder do it as well. It was on a white Jazz and it was a 1-piece pearloid. The only thing you have to be careful of is stepping on the cord.
Definitely Silver/Black Paisley . . . but I have yet to see it on an actual instrument. Only cheap photoshop renders . . .
This one came from a fellow TB'er. I think it might be my fav. Black jazz w/ abalone guard
Black on black would be my favorite. With a maple fingerboard!
I would go with something different than black on black... it's pretty overdone. I like to be more unique than just black.
Fender32: what year is your P bass? My '79 looks exactly the same as yours.
It's overdone for a reason (it looks awesome)
i once saw a picture of a black jazz with a tort pickguard, but the image was so messed up it looked like a black pearl unless you looked close and saw the red. This makes me want to go with a black pearl when for my jazz (as the parts start arriving)
I like tort on a 60s style jazz and black or white on a 70s jazz
Cheapy homemade stuff but, you get the idea....
I love tort, so I almost always say tort.
Other than that I have a black Strat that has a black pearl picguard and it is GORGEOUS.
Black also looks nice, as you can see from the many pictures here.
Geddy's looks great with a white pickguard (gotta love the maple fret board with blocks!!!)
I think abalone would look great on a black bass.
Oh, the choices ......
Black on maple.
Tort on rosewood.
